, if you ask me. he will talk about the environment, green energy products. that is his infrastructure plan. david: windmill power is more offensive now than 30 years ago we began spending tens of billions of dollars on it so has government spending helped us to get more energy for wind? the answer is no. natural gas, oil, those things have helped but those things are against the policies. dennis: david asman, thank you very much. join tomorrow night at 10:00 eastern time for television's best coverage of the state of the union. dennis: and the blizzard of 2013, spike in heating oil prices. last week, where are they headed now? phil flynn with those details. cheryl: one more argument for solar power. a guest to give us ideas on how you can make money. dennis: and, a a look at oil.

be a virtuous cycle, it saves tax dollars, improves the environment, reduces the damage from flooding, and all the attendant costs. it's a class eck example of what the federal government should learn from 200 years of experience trying to engineer the mississippi river and instead allowing some cases nature to take its course and avoid more expensive and worse damage. and this is what we need to do across the federal government. we don't have to spend twice as much money on health care as most of the developed countries for outcomes that are mediocre at best. we don't have to spend more money on defense than 12 or 13 of the remaining largest defense budgets, and on weapons that in many cases like our nuclear arsenal, but we have far more than we need and can ever use and can afford. we can pare that down, save tens of millions of dollars and still be the most powerful nation in the world. for the outrageous crop insurance that encourages reckless and expensive behavior by paying farmers to plant crops on land that never should have been cultivated in the first place. while we will control spe
in a hallow army. today the global environment is the most uncertain i have seen in the 36 years of service. it's unpredictable and dynamic. we simply don't know when we have to deploy soldiers to fight again. but history tells us that we will. we owe it to them, to ensure they have the proper resources to be ready when needed. the fiscal outlook which the u.s. army faces in fiscal year '13 is dire and to my knowledge unprecedented. in addition to the $180 billion. the combination of the continuing resolution a shortfall -- excuse me, the shortfall in oversays contingency operation funds for afghanistan and the sequester and fiscal year 2013 has resulted in a 17 to $18 billion shortfall to the army's operation and maintenance accounts. as well as an additional $6 billion to other programs. all of this will come in remaining seven months of this year. the fiscal year 2013 fiscal situation -- impact on all forces not serving in afghanistan or forward in korea. impacts which will have a significant impact to fiscal year 2014 and beyond. just a few of the acts we will be forced to take, are for
and enjoyable learning environment for students and we've seen it in our family. our youngest daughter followed her older sister to kansas state university, now a college in vet nature medicine, another area that kansas state university is so highly regarded is the study of animal science. k-state is the western border of the animal science corridor, the eastern corridor, the university of missouri. from west to east, this corridor, the animal science corridor is bounded by the research scientists and educators and stkaols that increase the -- and schools that increase the likelihoods that americans are going to have nutrition, be well fed and a safe food supply. it is an honor to may pa*eu -- pay tribute to those at kansas state university, to make sure it remains a place of higher education and learning in our state, but also to make certain that kansas state university, manhattan, kansas, is always that place called home, where students from across our state and around the globe feel like they found a family and a place to learn and improve their lives and to make certain that they contribut
is greatly broadly enabling environment, and have a portfolio approach in investments, in research and development. i think the are a number of things that come setting aside the right technology, i think there's a number of things that are attractive about the idea of making it easier for entrepreneurs to start their own businesses. >> i think that plays to a core strength. so anything that we can reduce the time and cost with developing new products and reducing the capital requirements i think is going to be a win for the training. >> one thing that you mentioned was materials. this may be lower on your list. last week, europe just announced they were funding to the tune of 1 billion euros in research into crafting. if you haven't heard about it, it's worth looking at. it's the carbon structure that is stronger than steel and more productive than copper and has lots of bendable, lots of very intuitive and industrial applications in your phone, and computers and things like that. and so we've just seen europe collectively make a big bet on research into wrangling with it and try
cosponsor of the cap and trade bill as it came through the environment and public works committee. >> bill: before the state of the union, the last time i saw you was at the senate judiciary hearing on guns where there was a witness gun safety, gayle trotter from the independent forum who said every woman needs an ar-15 and let me tell you this story about this one woman in her house and somebody broke in. she had her gun and shot them dead. that's why every woman needs an ar-15. you pointed out there's something wrong with her story. >> she was using a regular shotgun that none of the laws that we were considering would have made illegal. so to the extent she was trying to make a point that the legislation that we were considering would impede a woman's right to defend herself her example didn't prove that point. to the extent she was making a larger rhetorical point that it is a women's rights issue and a women's issue to defend yourself with exotic weaponry, she was able to make that point. >> bill:er are he hadert to to you was you don't understand, you're not a woman. >> she's right a
, that everybody has to be involved. but we also have to remember that the broader economic environment of communities is critical as well. for example, we need to make sure that folks who are working now, often in the hardest jobs, see their work rewarded with wages that allow them to raise a family without falling nool poverty. >> so president obama there in chicago using some very emotional and personal terms to make his pitch for new gun control measures. at one point saying too many of our children are being taken away from us. he repeated his call for a vote on gun control saying they deserve a vote. he used those words during the state of the union speech on tuesday and then talked about the importance of families and raising children in these neighborhoods that are prone to vie len. at one point he said, i wish i had a father who was around and involved. let's bring in our strategy session to talk about this. democratic strategist hilary rosen and ari fleischer and gloria borger. let me start with you, hilary, why do you suppose that the president was using those terms in chicag
